A Personal Goal

I have started a new goal for myself! I decided that it was time that I started working out. I signed Patrick and myself up at the Rec on Wednesday afternoon. My first workout was on Thursday and I quickly found out I hate the elliptical! It was killing my knees after 5 minutes, so I stopped and decided to work out trouble areas with weights aka the area from the abs down to the thighs. Friday was crazy busy so I didn't get to go back until today. I walked on the treadmill for 25 and ran for 5(future goal is to have more running and less walking), and then did a few weight machines. This may bore you but I need to start off with some accountability from you all until working out becomes routine for me. Hopefully Patrick's back will feel better soon so he can hit the gym with me too.

North Conway

The following is the print we purchase on our honeymoon. We decided to frame it and place it over our mantle. The print is of North Conway, NH where we spent a majority of our honeymoon.

Life or Something Like It!

You know the routine...Get up, get dressed, go to work, eat, and go to bed. That has pretty much been what has been going on lately with the Box's. I can't complain about any of that especially the work part. I am really enjoying my job! I finally got the feeling back that I thought I lost a year or two ago about teaching. I don't dread going to work and/or feel sick mind, body, or soul when going to work or thinking about work! My students rock!! Well we have also been to some pretty amazing high school basketball games, a soup supper thrown by the junior class, and had some pretty awesome game nights with our friends Rob, Jill, Mike, and Kim.
On another note, Patrick has become a lumberjack each afternoon and on weekends lately. We already have enough wood to get us through next winter! Men with their toys-I guess I should mention that about two weekends ago he bought an attachment for his weedeater.All the wood came from the branches that fell because of the ice storm. The inmates were brought out to gather branches and put them on the side to be picked up by a company. Which helped out a great deal.
Wood from our yard, the Whitham's yard, and from down our street!

Continued..... We may need to do an intervention! What do you think? I need to borrow the sign from How I Met Your Mother!
